Five years of EMULSIVE – a retrospective

It’s been 5 years since I launched EMULSIVE – half a decade — during that time, the landscape of the film photography community has changed IMMEASURABLY. For the first time since I can remember, it feels like the film and traditional photography community has truly found its feet. Over the past 12 months alone, we’ve […]

5 Frames… With Lomography CN 400 on an uncoated lens (35mm Format / Leica M6 + Voigtländer 35mm f/1.4 Nokton Classic SC)

When it comes to print film we all have our favorites, be it for aesthetics, latitude, how they handle some (intentional) abuse (over/underexposure, pushing, pulling), e.t.c. And I have narrowed down my list to Kodak Ektar 100, Kodak Ultramax 400 and CineStill 800T as, from my own experience and preferences this specific trio covers all […]

5 Frames… Of a desolate Blackpool with Kodak ColorPlus 200 (35mm Format / EI 200 / OLYMPUS OM-2)

It is an exploration into the rich hues, spirited movements and magical artistry that is ballet in Hawaii. Instead of focusing on the performance on stage, much of the visual story revolves around the in-between moments during rehearsal – […]

5 Frames… On a panoramic-mod Zeiss Ikonta 521/16 and Rollei Retro 400S (EI 4200 / 120 Format)

I have an obsession with panoramic photos and the cameras that take them. Walk into a museum or historical exhibit and chances are you’ll find a panorama; often impossibly long and expertly taken by masters of the past. Often there’s a bigger opportunity for unintended scenes, objects, people, and situations to be captured in time. […]

5 Frames… Of everyday household objects in a tiny “Studio” on Fujifilm Superia Premium 400 (EI 400 / 35mm Format / Olympus OM-1N)

I don’t know about the rest of you but the COVID-19 lockdown pretty much took away my photography mojo for a while. I mean, when you are worried about the health of your family, friends and yourself, these things are going to take a back seat. What I found eventually once we settled into the […]

5 Frames… Of Prague on ILFORD FP4 PLUS with my new Nikkormat FT2 (EI 125 / 35mm Format)

The Czech Republic has not escaped pandemic-related restrictions, with the country entering a state of emergency and national lockdown fairly early in the crisis. Outings for daily exercise were permitted, and while Prague’s parks were busy, the city centre – usually thronged with tourists – was all but deserted for several weekends. ILFORD FP4 PLUS […]
